Critic Reviews for Equinox: The Book of Fate

I was unsure how I felt about Anissa's emerging powers as set against Jefferson's longstanding ones but the show smartly brought Anissa to the fore in a way that feels totally credible and organic.

This episode gets a high pass because in addition to furthering the dialogue, it leaves a bunch of cliff-hangers that will ignite passion for future viewership.

If the show is trying to say something about paternalism, it's that trying to protect the balance of the ecosystem is costly.

Black Lightning is arguably one of the smartest, strongest comic book adaptations on television right now, but that's not to say the show hasn't been without its weaknesses.

In seven episodes, Jill Scott hasn't ever raised her voice, but she's already more menacing than any of the villains of the show.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out in the series, but it can't be a coincidence that at the end of episode 7, Anissa finally calls Grace back for a date.

The Book of Fate was another amazing installment for Black Lightning as it shows continued growth and potential for the rest of the season.

We'll have to wait for next week to really digest all this, but I really love how this show just keeps upping the ante. Can't wait to see where we go from here.

It's a refreshing subversion of superhero tropes. Black Lightning continues to zig where other superhero shows zag.

Mar 12, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

With this revelation from Jefferson, coupled with a few thrilling action sequences and a brilliantly executed frame job from Tobias' sister Tori, suddenly Black Lightning is back on track.
